Hello again, it’s time for some creative fun today using string. We made a spider web painting with a painting tool I think I will call a “paint bow” (like bow and arrow) which I think is pretty cool! Ever since our art activity, we have been singing the “itsy bitsy spider.” Also while you have your string out, we have more fun things for you to do with it that I am excited to feature at this weeks Love to Learn Linky party.  Thanks for joining us again, let’s get started! 🙂

Spider Web String Art
Put away the paintbrush and use an old hanger and string to make a painting. 

String or yarn (We used some fuzzy yarn)
Small hanger
Duct tape
Black paper
Tray for paint
Spider ring
Tissue paper/newspaper (optional)
Wax paper (optional)

1.  To make the painting bow, tape the string to the hanger. Make sure to wrap the string around the outside of the hanger, so the yearn will be flat against the paper when kids are painting.

2.  To make it easier for the kids to get paint on their paint bows, I put a mound of tissue paper underneath the wax paper. Then I squirted paint on top of the wax paper. If your tray is larger, you may not need the tissue paper.

3.  Give the kids paper and painting bows and let them create. I was thinking the bows would be great for making the lines of the spider web, and the glue and glitter would be great for the spiral part of the web. 
Ms. Tiger really wanted to add some color to our art projects so when we where done with our spider webs I squirted some primary colors onto the tray for them to use.
By the end of this art activity I was soooo glad this little guy had his apron on! The trick was getting him not to touch on anything on the way to the sink.

4.  Once the paint has dried, use the glue to decorate the spider web with glitter. I gave Ms. Tiger the bottle of glue and let her squirt it as she pleased. Then I handed her the glitter and let her sprinkle/dump glitter on the glue. I shook the extra glitter into an empty file folder, and dumped the glitter back into the container.
